As caissons continue, 210 North Aberdeen scores its superstructure permit

Caissons are poured at 210 North Aberdeen

LG Group’s 210 North Aberdeen scored another building permit this week, adding the foundation & and superstructure permit to the caisson permit issued July 5. That means Power Construction (with McHugh Concrete on masonry duty) can continue work up to the 3rd floor, with the full-build permit expected soon.

When complete, the NORR-designed tower will deliver 363 apartments across its 19 stories, while connecting to the Arthur Harris building under renovation. A restoration permit was issued for that portion of the project (216 N Aberdeen) on July 17.

Demolitions are underway for 210 North Aberdeen

Slo-mo Green Line Fly-by over 210 North Aberdeen

It’s tough to see the demolition work Taylor Excavating has started at 210 North Aberdeen (fences and angles and whatnot), so the video above, taken from an outbound CTA train, was the best chance to watch. Soon, Taylor Excavating will bust through the backs of the buildings along May Street for better spectating.

LG Group has approval for 210 Aberdeen, a NORR-designed 19-story, 363-unit apartment project in the West Loop. To make way for it, demolition permits were issued May 11 for 213, 215, and 221 North May Street (the aforementioned “backs of buildings) as well as partial demolitions for 210 and 214 North Aberdeen. The original Arthur Harris & Company building, which encompasses both those Aberdeen addresses, is being preserved. Only the small addition on the south end of the building is being removed.

The handsome Arthur Harris & Company building stays put.
